Do you ever go back and read your archives? It is pretty interesting stuff. I never kept a diary or journal while growing up, so I am fascinated with the ability to go back to read about my life last year.
Although many mommies start their blogs to record their children's milestones, I started my blog primarily because I was bored. Living 10 hours away from my nearest family member or friend was quite lonesome. Fortunately, you guys came to the rescue. SERIOUSLY. What would I do without you, dear internet friends?
So although I know I am a "mommy blogger," my blog was not created solely to document my children's lives. This is a place for me to share my personality, my interests, and my life. And because I am feeling talkative today, I have decided to share some more information about my past with you. I am alway hesitant to share information from my childhood, for fear that others will judge me. But since I trust must of you, I will share a few tidbits. Here goes...
1. My mother had me when she was 17. She dropped out of high school and started waitressing. To this today, she still works as a waitress.
2. I have never met my father. He lived about 10 minutes away, yet he never made an effort to contact me. Nor I him.
3. I was a very chubby child. I was often teased in school and at home. Although I like to pretend that it didn't affect my self esteem, it really did. I cannot look in the mirror without uttering some self-deprecating remark.
Ahhh...that felt good. Perhaps I'll share more on another day.
